Wow. Susan Powter is still very intense after all these years. Remember her “stop the insanity” fitness infomercials from the late 80s? Susan is back video blogging, and she’s taking no prisoners. Watch as she tears apart the fat acceptance movement, in a totally loving, unapologetic, ass-kicking way.
Your body is a battleground. A lot of big, bad companies stand to make a lot of money from controling you and your body. Both the junk food industry, fashion, and marketing all want to manipulate you into being unhappy and obese, but it doesn’t have to be that way. Loving yourself means to simultaneously reject other people’s body images and at the same time define your own body image for yourself and bust your ass to attain it. It’s not easy.
Again, loving your body means working to make it the best body possible. Self-confidence is sexy. You want to have the best possible life for yourself. Make sure you eat, rest, and exercise in the best ways you can. Be at peace with where you are now, and remember that means working hard to be someplace even better.
Here’s the blog post Susan was responding to in making the video.
